What are your general comments?

"honestly i was not very impressed with the interview. i did not feel that afterwards they had really learned much about me, but yet i still got accepted. there was only one other student interviewing with me, and so i thought they should have gotten to know ME better. instead there were more questions about random things that i did not feel were really important. i have gotten in other places, and so i do not intend on going here."
